The Blood Wood: This once beautiful forest has been forever changed to a dark place where few enter and fewer come out. Only those who know the paths, or have been invited by the precarious Queen Alachia can travel easily in the wood. All plants ooze a red substance similar to, but not quite, blood; and all animals share the blood elves fate of having thorns grow from their bodies. Many feel the wood is corrupt as are its inhabitants, yet these same people find an eery beauty emanating from the blood elves whenever they encounter one.
